Dear self, sometime in the future.I write this in a serious tone, for these are perilous times. I never thought I'd use such a august vibe in my personal journal. Maybe I ought to get the Morgan Freedman or Liam Neeson voice synthesizer app? Maybe I should indeed.Well, a deadly mob has succeeded in its obnoxious, brazen coup d'etat. A clumsy, blunderous heist that anybody with half a brain could clearly see. This coup d'etat brought to you in part by:
- Fake news media
- Big tech
- Deep State
- Libtard lefties/radicals
- Invisible elites
Right now, enemies have fought a secret war, an informational war against the citizens of the greatest nation on Earth.Those enemies have maligned We the People, they've brought the #CCP into the fold, who are simply laughing at all of the chaos and weakening they've infected our nation with. A nation that has made them uber rich. Be careful who you sleep with, America. Sometimes that mistress will get greedier and needier and China certainly has.
I'm not in the habit of resolutions. They're usually set by people with no intention of keeping/maintaining them. I typically map goals out throughout the year anyway out of habit and work towards them.As far as not so new goals go, I do want to minimize certain things. My time spent on anti-social media, or on-line in general. I try to veer clear from Internet poisoning of my soul. While I am a technologist by skill and trade, I'm really not. I find more fulfillment in art and in writing, in literature and my environment. Politics was putrid, it splintered and divided people. Now there are two exiting camps in America: the communists/socialist far left (aka radical libs), and the ones who weren't. I was of the later group, the ones who considered themselves as being patriotic, which the left/libs despised (just as much as they did freedom and the nation that they're in). Ungrateful, spoiled rotten shits really. I wish they could be offloaded into Hong Kong, mainland China or North Korea for an extended vacation. Might give them a new appreciation for the nation (somehow I doubt it, but who knows?).I observed that I came to seriously detest the internet ecosystem, which was hostile and toxic. It was narcissistic and mean spirited, and there was an evil mindset that flourished therein. Never-mind the fact that it was a devourer of one's time and mental/emotional well-being, but also a spreader of misinformation, confusion, and even depression.I know we 'feel' like it's a good thing, and it can be when done right. Yet most people cannot handle it, they lack the discipline and personal tools to manage themselves. In a sense, it could be a wonderful ecosystem like it once was during the politically incorrect web 1.0 era. Now? It's a form of addiction and also enslavement. Self-enslavement, for we do have the option to walk away. Facebook and Twitter are influencer think tanks mass manipulating us all in how to think, act, behave, and even spend, who to vote for, all the choices you thought were your own. They want to own your ass!
I'm in Wilmington, NC on this very last day of 2020. Approximately 2 hrs south by east of Chapel Hill. It's full of touristy hotspots, they have a very nice mall here too, plus 3 beaches.Had me some delicious Pho last night from Indochine (a local hotspot here, was a madhouse last night!). Interesting Thai/Vietnamese menu, you seldom see that. I forgot how much I miss legit asian food. The culinary scene in Chapel Hill caters to college town kids, meaning it's cheap fare, shoddily made. These snowflakes couldn't care less about quality food, actually. That's precisely why you have all of these rinky dink places that serves crap rather than legit food. Back in Chicago, I'd order this for lunch like it was nothing, lol. Like it was Mcky D's! Hah hah.
